As our energy future changes so will our use of energy. Buildings represent a large portion of our dilemma with fossil fuels. With decarbonization and electrification programs being put in place all over the world including here at home so we will need to adjust to using different equipment.
Geothermal fits into both decarbonization and electrification programs and it benefits everyone involved including utility companies by providing a predictable steady draw on their power. It is aesthetically pleasing since it has no outdoor unit and it benefits the end user by providing a clean comfortable environment in the building at the best cost possible of all fuels.

Best of all it has no negative impact on the environment. As a matter of fact, if you use renewable energy to power the unit your carbon footprint is zero.
In this 4-part series running November 7, 10, 14, and 17 we will discuss good procedures for installing a geothermal heat pump in various situations. These practices will assist the dealer in making the best decisions they can utilize to effectively install a geothermal heat pump to operate at its top efficiencies. Properly installed a Geothermal Heat Pump is the most efficient heating and cooling equipment available today.
Webinar 1 – SITE SURVEY
November 7, 2022 – 2pm ET

In this first of four webinars, attendees will learn how a geothermal heat pump operates and what conditions must exist and be addressed at the site in order for the installation to be successful. You will learn what the site requires for the most expedient, cost-effective way to provide the fuel source for a geothermal heat pump. Finally, we will look at Open Loop
(Ground Water) and Closed Loop (Ground Source) systems. The “Loop” is the “fuel source” for the system, where the heat pump can extract heat from the ground instead of burning fossil fuels. We will also evaluate building characteristics using a prepared Manual J calculation as a starting point to select a unit with proper loop sizing along with using Loop Link software.

Pete Prydybasz – B.J. Terroni Company, INC. and PSP Consulting
When the Steel Mill closed, needing a new trade, I found my way into the HVAC industry, literally starting from the ground up, hanging duct work. After learning how an Air-source heat pump worked and learning how a ground source heat pump worked there was no turning back. I left the contracting business and migrated to wholesale. There as my knowledge base grew, I helped start the first ground source heat pump department in a distributor in our region. Realizing the industry was in its infancy I saw a future. I moved to manufacturing. I became the Sales and Marketing Manager for a premier, innovative manufacturer of ground heat pumps. Since then I have consulted with distributors and manufacturers on how to distribute support and sell ground source systems. Today I maintain PSP Consulting and am a manufacturer’s representative with BJ Terroni in Philadelphia.
